Welcome Returnees!

This has been a challenging time for all of us with the pandemic impacting members from all around the world. It’s very important to take care of yourself, both physically and mentally. For some, this has been a time to return or look in on their creativity.

It’s been wonderful to see members of Forward Motion who haven’t been around in a while popping up in the forums and in live chat. Welcome back!

Both new members and returnees, by all means say hello in the Welcome Mat board. It’s so great to have you!

Start Out the New Year Right

Start Out the New Year Right

2020 is just around the corner. For many people this means goals for the coming year. How about starting out the year with a writing goal?

We are starting up the 2-month challenges again, with the first challenge will running from January 1 to February 28 (59 days). The challenge consists of several types of goals, with each goal having a tier. Choose one, two, or several!

Many who are jumping in have been posting to the “2 Month Challenge” post with links to their personal ‘name’ post(s).

And remember: This is all for fun! Enjoy yourselves!

New Site is Live!

The new site for Forward Motion is now live! The old site still exists, with the link to it in the sidebar. Please post new posts in the new forum, as no further posts from the old forum will be ported over.

As the note says in the sidebar, all user accounts were successfully ported over. However, passwords were encrypted, so they could not. Please use the “Recover Password” option to reset your password. At that point, you should be good to go. Don’t forget to fill in your profile area!

I think I got all the Moderator roles and permissions set up, but if not, please let me know!

Some boards have been reorganized, moved to other areas, and so forth. The “Motivation” area has been left alone (so, please don’t scream in alarm!).

You will notice that there are several boards that are no longer live. They have not been deleted, but instead archived. Some haven’t been used in a while, others need permissions worked on, with others now combined with new live boards. We can always bring them out of retirement, recreate, or create new ones if needed. If you have any suggestions, please post to the “Suggestions and Troubleshooting” or “The Main Board” boards.
